, steve warned that if this devolves into revolutionary justice where there is a departure from dew due process t obviously this would be a stain on egypt's reputation, but i think what people in egypt may be afraid of is precisely the opposite, that the courts will get mired in due process and actually won't hold mubarak sufficiently accountable, either because of their kind of internal processes or because they've been directed by the military to not punish mubarak. so that i think is what people are worried about is they're worried that the court system may not punish mubarak as fully as people believe he needs to be punished. so there is this very delicate balancing act that has to happen. >> precisely what i mean by revolutionary justice and a desire for revenge, which you can understanding. this is why perhaps this trial in this way is not the best way of going about it. perhaps a truth in reconciliation commission, along the lines of what happened in south africa many years ago, may have been a better way to go. >> warner: because that would lay out all the abuse, how the secret
expected. economist steve richiuitto believes the financial impact will be modest. >> the numbers that are being bandied about are basically anywhere from $10 billion to $40 billion. but if you look at it in terms of its effect on quarterly g.d.p., third quarter g.d.p., how much could you take off of that? well the answer, basically, is about 0.1%. that's nowhere near the $45 billion in private insurance damage from hurricane katrina in 2005, but many experts say it's too early to calculate the full impact of irene, especially with some towns still underwater. and then there's the yet-to-be- tallied impact to retailers. some chains, like home depot and lowes, benefited from storm preparations. others, however, suffered as irene forced many to shutter during a busy weekend. analyst r.j hottovy said late august can be important for many retailers. >> typically in a period like this, especially being back to school season, a lot of the purchases are simply going to get delayed into this week. the problem for retailers? this potentially could move inventories to a markdown situation.
. >> reporter: economist steve gallagher says the problem is a slow economy can only make jobs at a very slow pace. in the last three months, employers have added a total of 216,000 new jobs to payrolls. today, we learned that more jobs were actually created in may and june than originally reported. but nearly 14 million americans remain unemployed. and, with job growth still anemic, the unemployment rate is going to stay elevated. economist anthony chan says if we're lucky, we'll get as many as 150,000 new jobs a month through the end of this year. >> that, i think, will be just barely enough to hold the unemployment rate. we may see a little bit of a decline in the unemployment rate between now and the end of the year, and, the hope and expectation is that next year we start to see a little bit stronger growth. >> reporter: economists believe most new jobs will come from the private sector as they did last month. the government, particularly at the state and local level, cut positions again in july. it was the ninth straight month of job losses in the government sector. >> it sounds like it
